ON permit allocation sees reduction for one public university, thirteen public colleges

CBC reports that the Government of Ontario has allocated its international student permits for 2024, which has resulted in reduced permit numbers for Algoma University and 13 of the 24 public colleges. Colleges Ontario President Marketa Evans said that the loss of revenue from the drop will have a severe impact on the Fall term. “No organization can absorb such losses without significant cuts to operations,” said Evans. Conestoga College, which led Canada in the number of international student permits distributed in 2023, reportedly faces the greatest impact. The college states that its allocation is set at “less than 50% of our current international enrolment.”
